Dave's family relocated to Central Oregon in the late 1970's, as he grew up in this area he developed a bond and passion for everything that the Bend Oregon area has to offer including: year-round recreational activities, Pole Pedal Paddle & Cascade Cycling Classic, great restaurants, fun breweries & pubs, great schools, family friendly adventures and pro-business environment. His commitment to quality service, combined with strong negotiating skills, have added to his success in getting deals done for his clients. His financial background was developed at Smith Barney while working with families to develop and execute their financial plans through Wealth Management in Boston. This same skill set provides a valuable advantage to our relationships when comparing & evaluating properties from primary homeowners, families in relocation, vacation rentals, investments and luxury properties in Bend Oregon. Dave works to understand the concerns of both buyers and sellers. He can carefully assess his clients needs, and with great enthusiasm and persistence work to achieve their goals. When you work with Dave and the Bend Living team, you can expect that our team will help you to navigate your way through the variety of neighborhoods, and the real estate transaction from acceptance to close. In his leisure you are bound to catch him with his family walking The Old Mill, hiking, Stand up Paddle Board, biking, playing dress up with his two young daughters and even having a date night (thank goodness for grandparents) with his lovely wife Stefanie who is also the Creative Director for the Bend Living Team. We have been so blessed and love being able to give our energies & resources back to making our town and neighborhoods better.
